  • London Police Opens Investigation Into Harvey Weinstein Accusations

"I thought he was going to fire me", she told the paper.

The actress says she said no to Weinstein professionally many times over the years, and that Weinstein would often respond with anger, profanity and threats.

The film mogul reappeared briefly overnight outside his daughter Remy's home in Los Angeles, telling waiting paparazzi he's "not doing OK". "Mr. Weinstein has begun counseling, has listened to the community and is pursuing a better path. Mr. Weinstein is hoping that, if he makes enough progress, he will be given a second chance".

On Tuesday, his brother and co-founder, Bob Weinstein, and the company's president, David Glasser, told concerned employees in a video conference call that they were shocked by the allegations and unaware of payments made to women who complained of unwanted touching, sexual harassment and other over-the-line behaviour, according to several employees who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Jane Fonda was told of sexual harassment allegations surrounding Harvey Weinstein past year, the Hollywood actress has revealed. "And when they are famous and powerful like Harvey then it gets talked about and so it's really important that those women have been fearless enough to come out", Fonda said.

The actress is one of dozens of women accusing movie exec Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct.

"I said, over and over, 'I don't want to do this, stop, don't.... He overpowered me", Evans said of her meeting with the film producer at his office. About a week later she was told by a Weinstein assistant she didn't get the job because she was an actor.

Since then, the story has developed continuously, with a large number of women coming forward to claim they were sexually harassed by Weinstein - allegations he has denied.

"We can from this create a new paradigm where producers, managers, executives and assistants and everyone who has in the past shrugged and said "well, that's just Harvey/Mr X/insert name here" will realize that we in numbers can affect real change", she said. Weinstein was sacked Sunday by The Weinstein Co., a studio he co-founded with his brother.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' board said it would hold a special meeting Saturday to discuss the allegations against Weinstein and what, if any, course of action it should take.

Meanwhile, New York City police told the AP on Thursday that investigators are reviewing old files to see if any women previously reported assaults.
